FLAGS TO BE FLOWN AT HALF STAFF. THEY WILL REMAIN THAT WAY UNTIL SUNDAY. THIS YEAR, GUN SHOPS HIT RECORD ON PLAQUE FRIDAY. THE FBI RAN MORE THAN 185,000 PACK GROUND CHECKS ON THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING FOR PEOPLE LOOKING TO BUY GUNS FROM LICENSED DEALERS. THAT’S 5% MORE THAN LAST YEAR. BUT BUN RIGHTS OPPONENTS SAY THE SALES ARE NOT AS THEY SEEM. COUNT CHRIS EDMOND WHO TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE BLACK FRIDAY SALES TO PURCHASE A SMITH AND WESSON GUN. IT WORKS GREAT. BUT THE GUN ISN’T FOR CHRIS. IT’S FOR HIS WIFE. MORE PEOPLE WANT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. THIS PISTOL IS FOR MY WIFE TO CARRY. I ALREADY HAVE ONE I CARRY ALL OF THE TIME. THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS HAS SEEN A TREMENDOUS INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF FIREARM SALES. ANDREW ROTHMAN IS PRESIDENT OF THE GUN OWNERS CIVIL RIGHTS ALLIANCE. HE’S NOT SURPRISED BY THE RECORD NUMBER OF BACKGROUND CHECKS OTHER BUY THE MORE THAN 210,000 MINNESOTAENS. HE SAYS GUNS ARE MORE AFFORDABLE NOW. BUT MOSTLY HE BELIEVES MASS SHOOTINGS ACROSS THE COUNTRY HAVE PEOPLE LOOKING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. WHENEVER THERE IS ANY SORT OF CRIME COMMITTED WITH A GUN, THERE’S TALK FROM POLITICIANS ABOUT MAKING THOSE MORE DIFFICULT TO GET. AND THAT GETS PEOPLE THINKING ABOUT PURCHASING THEM GETTING BEFORE THEY ARE HINDERED MORE BY LAWS. MAKING CLAIMS THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO TAKE EVERYONE’S GUNS. SO YOU HAVE TO HURRY AND BUY MORE GUNS. THIS WOMAN’S ORGANIZATIONS BELIEVES MORE GUNS IN HOUSEHOLDS WILL PUT MORE PEOPLE AT RISK. AS FAR AS I KNOW, NO CONSEALED CARRY PERMIT HOLDER HAS EVER STOPPED A TERROR ATTACK.
